Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The dinosaur hero of this story may be little, but he's got big things to do over the course of the day. After a "grumpy-lumpy" wake-up, a "yummy-tummy" breakfast, tenacious teeth brushing and getting dressed, he heads outside for non-stop play with his prehistoric pals until bathtime and bedtime. Lewis and Kirk, produce a tale that's not as satisfying as their Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo. Lewis's rhymes are less crisp here ("Dinosaur, dinosaur,/ laughing without care./ Funny-bunny dinosaur,/ jumping everywhere). Kirk has a gift for creating smooth, alluring surfaces and characters reminiscent of vintage plasticine toys, but the scaly characters at times seem static. Still, the book zips along with the speed of a velociraptor, and the domestic scenes sport the kind of details that will likely tickle young readers' fancies-they'll note, among other things, that the family pet is a saber-tooth cat, and the hero's favorite stuffed toy is a woolly mammoth. Ages 3-5. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Little dinosaur's day is busy from sun-up to sundown. He bounces from bed and enjoys a hearty bowl of Dino Puffs before racing outside to join his friends. Playing soccer and jumping rope he is a "jumpy-bumpy," "busy-whizzy" dinosaur. When the stars come out, Mama calls her youngster home for "slurpy-burpy" spaghetti, a "bubbly-wubbly" bath, a bedtime story, and a kiss goodnight. The breezy text has catchy rhyming phrases that little ones will love to repeat. The illustrations of gouache and colored pencil are as energetic and bold as the little dinosaur and his pals. Clever details, such as the Dino Times newspaper, the dinosaur mobile over baby dino's crib, and the stuffed wooly mammoth that our young dinosaur snuggles down with, will delight and amuse young listeners and their parents who read to them. Pair this with Jane Yolen's series that includes How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food, and How to Dinosaurs Clean Their Room, among others. 2006, Scholastic, Ages 3 to 7.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Rhyming couplets describe a typical summer day in the life of a young dinosaur. The text, which is reminiscent of the classic action rhyme "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear," guides the reptilian protagonist as he wakes up, eats breakfast, brushes his many teeth, gets dressed, plays outside all day, eats dinner, has a bath, and goes to bed. The rhymes are pedestrian and occasionally forced, but the gouache-and-colored-pencil illustrations almost save the book. Cartoonlike and cheerful, they feature plenty of details for young dinosaur lovers to point out, such as the "trilobite farm" under the bed. Despite the fun art, however, this book pales in comparison to Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (Scholastic, 2000). Purchase only if your young dinosaur fans are roaring for more.-Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A young Tyrannosaurus rex awakes amid the jumble of tousled sheets and the clutter of toy trains, yo-yos and blocks. "Dinosaur, dinosaur, wake up with a roar! Grumpy-lumpy dinosaur, stomp across the floor!" But as he breakfasts at the tomato-red table with his mother and baby brother, things are slightly peculiar; the family cat is saber-toothed and the breakfast eggs are rather large. Once the morning process is complete, the young T. rex bursts out the door to greet the sun and his dinosaur friends. The day is filled with jump ropes, soccer balls and exultant mud stomping. As dusk descends, Mom, in her polka-dotted dress, ushers the reluctant dino-kid inside for dinner. Bath time is next and then a bedtime story as he snuggles with his plush wooly mammoth. Thus ends an idyllic day. The illustrations, in this exuberant rhyme, are so evocative they plunk the reader right into the midst of the carefree and magical summer days of childhood or, as in this case, dinosaurhood. If you have a fondness for dinosaurs, rousing words and zingy-bright pictures, then add this to your laptime reading list. (Picture book. 3-5)
